#kamisukareview – We already hold the Indonesian version of the realm 7i review unit. This series came together with realme 7, enrich their product lines in the middle segment. Then what's the difference between these two series, it's impossible if it's just a different naming.
Just like Realme 7, this series also carries the slogan “64MP Power Master”. Referring to chipset performance, battery capacity and fast charging, 90Hz Ultra Smooth Display, a fresher and more trendy design, and large memory capacity.
Interestingly, Indonesia was specially selected to be the first country to launch Realme 7i globally. This is also the first time the 'i' variant of the numerical realm series has landed in Indonesia.
Full Review of Realme 7i
The realm unit that we hold actually has a market that intersects with reality 7. This strategy is quite clever, to block rivals from taking a different heart. They can adjust according to their pocket and needs without having to run to other brands of smartphones.
Before discussing every important aspect, let's take a peek at the contents of the realme 7i sales package that we are currently holding. Still in line, Realme wraps its products in a simple and minimalist yellow box.
When disassembled, there is 1 smartphone unit, manual and warranty card. Like most current cellphones, there is also an ejector SIM. Then there is the charger head and the USB Type-C cable. Unfortunately there is no headset.
When I first held the 7i realm review unit, to be honest, the design was special. Bringing attractive colors and a fresh look. The rear design is far from monotonous, especially the main camera layout.
Inspired by glass spaces in nature, the realme 7i series features brilliant mirror designs. There's an iconic dividing line to the series in a diagonal direction, dividing it into two halves.
One thing is special, the two parts use completely different processes. The high light reflections on top and the matte texture on the bottom create a very sharp contrast.
We agree with the claim of the realm that the overall combination is very harmonious and balanced, resulting in an attractive aesthetic effect.
The front area is decorated with a touch screen with a punch hole on the top left. If you take a closer look, the entire back cover has a gradient color that enhances the 7i's premium visuals.
Comfortable body texture in the hand, not slippery. Indeed there are fingerprints attached but not too significant. This smartphone has a 3.5mm audio port on the bottom area, flanked by speaker holes and mic holes. There is a USB Type-C port.
On the right side are the volume and power buttons. On the right side is the SIM tray. Then in the rear body, a charming design camera holder is embedded in the upper left area. While the fingerprint sensor is located at the top center.

When it comes to bezels, the front display of the 7i realm review unit is quite thin. While the display panel adopts 2.5D Glass, so be a little careful not to fall, because the protruding shape is easy to hit the glass area.
Other than that, because of using an IPS LCD panel, the display that radiates on the screen is not optimal in the hot sun.
